The location by the Mekong was perfect, and it is within easy walking distance to all that Luang Prabang has to offer. Rooms are well appointed. We had the one with the ground floor terrace furthest from reception, which I believe are the smallest, but this was not a problem. A complimentary sunset river cruise is offered. Breakfast, cooked to...

Excellent location on the Mekong river with warm and friendly service. The room was large, well appointed, and very clean. Breakfast by the river was wonderful. The staff gave very helpful advice on local sights and arranged trips. Overall, an outstanding experience.

"I stayed in a deluxe suite on the second floor of the oldest building. The room is elegant. Beautifully designed with a mix of modern luxury without surpassing the colonial style and feel of the suite. All essential amenities of a luxury hotel are available, what sets it apart is the fridge full of different kinds of refreshments like sodas...

Four years on we returned to Belle Rive in beautiful LPQ with some worries that it would have changed. Not to worry, Belle Rive remains a wonderful little world of lovely rooms, gracious friendly staff and oodles of charm. The terrace cafe has moved to the lower level facing the river and it makes for an even nicer view... if...

If you want a huge five star mega-hotel, then go elsewhere. If you want a beautiful boutique hotel (only 13 units) then the BelleRive is your place. First--absolutely the best location--you are right on the Mekong River and just a few minutes from the center of Luang Prabang and the Night Market, the Royal Palace and many of the Temples....

The hotel is located right in the middle of everything,very convenience to go around town. We enjoyed good quality of breakfast beside Kong river. The hotel also provided us free ride on the boat during sunset. Overall, good place to stay ,although the quality of the mattress and sheets could be improved.

Great stay! Very comfortable room with beautiful views of the Mekong. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Loved the sunset cruise. What really made the stay, however, was the excellent service. Everyone from the waiters to the bartenders to the manager, Vone, were super friendly, prompt, helpful and accommodating, a rare find in Lao service!
